Smiley Face by Sharon Morgan

Hi guys I've been AWOL for a while now..... I'm in charge of the Fathers Day stall for my kids school. Luckily for me I have a couple of wonderful helpers in Michelle and Nicole with Karen and Chrissie and Sylvanna to back us up! But I have 880 students to make gifts for....... So as you can imagine I'm a bit hectic.. LOL and alot of other things have had to slide... my blog for one... Hopefully though when it's all over I should have some fabulous Off the Page ideas for you all..... And you know they're cheap to make!

So I thought I should take a moment to show you another layout from Retreat... but not one of mine. Here's a layout which was done by my new scrapbuddy at the Retreat I went on. Sharon has a Cricket. She used the cricket to cut her title from patterned paper.

I love the economy of this layout. Cutting the title from patterned paper and the stars and then doodling and stamping on the page. The costs for this layout were the background paper and the offcuts of patterned paper. So a very cheap layout! And the design is a simple one but very effective.
